Wow! We are loving this work by Thandiwe Muriu! Absolutely brilliant use of patterns, colours, found object accessories, hair and headwraps, photography. These extraordinary portraits are such a beautiful and amazing way to share cultural perspectives.

From her website: “As the sole woman operating in the male-dominated advertising photography industry in Kenya, Thandiwe repeatedly confronted questions around the role of women in society, the place of tradition, and her own self-perception. These experiences inspired her first work, the Camo series, a project of cultural reflection. Camo was the catalyst for her to push new boundaries in her photography, leading her into a deeply personal artistic journey.

Thandiwe takes you on a colourful, reflective journey through her world as a woman living in modern Kenya, as she reinterprets contemporary African portraiture, and presents a bold new vision of a woman and her autonomy.”
